Feedback / Testimonials

Janette Dewar, Falkirk said on 25/07/2020:
James came and measured for 2 iron railings for my front garden path and step and one for my step at the patio door in the back garden. He was very friendly and helpful designing exactly what I wanted. This was completed in 3 weeks to a very high standard and was at reasonable cost. I have asked him to do more work for me and highly recommend him.

Mrs Arthur, Falkirk said on 09/07/2020:
James built and installed our gates approx 7 years ago. We recently had a wee problem with them and James came up sorted the problem in no time. He really is a lovely man.  Nothing is too much trouble for him from design too finish. Many Thanks James.

Mrs Samuel, Denny said on 31/10/2018:
I found James after phoning Trustys.  James built and installed a wrought iron front garden fence for me.   I was very pleased with his job and his pricing was very good.   I would recommend him to others.  I got him to leave a few of his leaflets so that I could pass his details to friends.

I’ve been meaning to get handrails and a side gate for some time but wasn’t sure what I wanted. James talked me through the best options for my needs and gave me a very reasonable quote.  He arrived when he said he would and worked hard without a break.  I’m delighted with the results, exactly what I wanted.  Also James is very pleasant and friendly. Highly recommended.

James made railings for my house and my sons house.  The results are lovely, and I am very pleased.  I found James as a person to be very courteous, pleasant and reliable.  I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Margaret Thomson, Milton Of Campsie said on 22/05/2018:
 The work James done for me in fitting driveway gates was absolutely outstanding.  I designed the gates myself and James made them to my specification.  I cannot fault him in anyway, he was fantastic.  His pricing was amazing too.  Delighted with his work and would absolutely recommend to others.

Lynne O’Brein, Falkirk said on 21/05/2018:
James designed and built a gate and replaced railings at the side of my house.  I found his workmanship to be excellent and it is clear he definitely knows his stuff.   People have since commented to me on how good a job he did.   As a person, I liked and trusted James from the start and found him approachable and professional and was impressed on how he does business.  I have since recommended James to my daughter and a friend.

Mr Makin, Falkirk said on 21/05/2018:
James made a couple of drive width wrought iron gates and wrought iron door rails at the side of our door and he done a good job.  I also used James several years ago when he made signage and wrought iron ornaments for our garden.  I have had no problems at all with James.  He is approachable and friendly, and you can have a laugh with him.  You pay the going rate with James and I would recommend him.

Pauline Cooper, Haggs said on 21/05/2018:
James made and fitted electric gates and put railings on my wall.    James took no money up front for this job, which was large and insisted on only being paid when we were totally satisfied.   James done an absolutely brilliant job for which I cannot praise him highly enough.  I found James to be honest, reliable and he certainly goes above and beyond.  I have since recommended him to a pal who had the same experience as me.

Ellen Cheape, Falkirk said on 20/05/2018:
James put in double wrought iron gates in our driveway.  We don’t have much space in our drive, but James managed to design gates that allowed my husband to get his car in the drive and close the gates.  James is a gem of a fellow and I was very happy with his work.   He is genuinely such a nice guy and I thought his prices were reasonable too.  I would definitely recommend him.

Customer, Falkirk said on 20/05/2018:
James is a professional and I couldn’t fault his service.  He done what he said he would in the time he said he would.  James made hand rails for the front and the back of my house.  The one at the front is in great detail and a lot of people have admired it.  I would have no hesitation at all in recommending James to anyone.
